OVERVIEW

Focused attack.

Warm, woody, and dense, with a controlled sustain, the EC1 is a 14-mil single-ply head with the Edge Control ring mounted on the underside to eliminate unwanted mid-range frequencies and enhance attack. The extra film thickness extends durability while maintaining the stick response of a single-ply. A 3-mil patch on the Reverse Dot model lends additional attack and focus in the center for fat backbeats.

FEATURES
  • 14-mil single-ply head
  • 3-mil patch for additional attack and focus in the center for fat backbeats
  • Edge Control ring on the underside to eliminate unwanted mid-range frequencies and enhance attack

The center dot works well, the outer rings are standard EC2,questionable, which flaked off inside my drums previously(I owned an entire set of clear EC2's last year with same outer rings which did this on all my drums). I hope this problem has been resolved. Versions of this head in 2012 had outer rings of the same material as the center dot-no problems with those.
So with reservation I give this head a OK rating.

    Comments about Evans EC1 Reverse Dot Coated Snare Drumhead:

    Tried the snare head and played it at a show right off the bat. This snare made my Ludwig Epic snare really open up , but too much. The ring and openness of the snare was too much for my taste in a snare sound, especially a wooden snare. I put it on my metal snare instead and went back to a coated single ply head.

    Nice woody crack

    Comments about Evans EC1 Reverse Dot Coated Snare Drumhead:

    My Tama Artwood (maple) snare came equipped with one of these heads. I have since tried others, but in the end came back to the EC1. With this drum it has a nice woody open sound, with just the right (slight) amount of dampening to control the ring. Awesome crack. I will be sticking with this head.

    Comments about Evans EC1 Reverse Dot Coated Snare Drumhead:

    It makes your snare sound like mix between a confused snare and a floor tom. It rings like a snare but it sounds wayyyyy to deep. I tried tuning it and when i put it the tightest it could go it still sounded deep. Not good for punk or rock music maybe good if your into that really deep snare sound but other than that not good.

              Comments about Evans EC1 Reverse Dot Coated Snare Drumhead:

              When I was selecting which new drumhead to buy for my Yamaha Rydeen snare (which had a pretty bad taye stock head on it), I knew I wanted something that would rid of the bad overtones I was getting. I saw some good reviews of the EC Reverse Dot on the internet, so I figure I'd buy that. AWESOME. This changed the sound completely. I really recommend buying this snare head if you have a cheap snare and you want to make it sound a whole lot better.
